B&A Friday

I’ve decided to start showcasing readers before and after pictures again on Fridays.  So if you would like one of your projects to be featured please email me your pics at betweenblueandyellow@yahoo.com.  It can be anything you want, as long as there is a before and a better looking after.
This one today comes from Jeannette at Strikes my Fancy, she did a lovely little re-do of an old trunk.

What color is more vibrant, calming, and fun all mixed into one? For me, it is a bright robin's egg blue. It can be a statement color, and accent color, or whatever you want it to be.
I painted the top, sides and then feet. I didn't saturate the wood with a layer of paint, cause I still wanted it to look a little old and rustic. The pictures, again, don't show it that well. I'm still learning this whole camera thing too...Then I had to decide on the detailing. As you can see, I opted for black. It is classic, timeless, and hot right now. Lets face it, I was pretty sure I was going to sell it on. I wanted something marketable.  Let me know what you think of this lovely little thing! I love hearing back from you. (Oh and yes, it has already sold by the way.) Props to my love for seeing the potential in this!
